Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

I've included the "Black Blood of the Earth" as a MacGuffin in more than a few RPGs over the years. When some wild-eyed, clown-school drop-out grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite cowl up against the alley wall, looks you crooked in the eye, and asks you if you paid your dues; you just s...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

I had to watch the movie twice to notice Kelly Preston, she shares most of her scenes with Snake Plissken.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

Yeah, it's one of those things where his power isn't great for a superhero, but could you imagine what he could do for farmers? Or helping people grow vegetables in impoverished areas? Or like Woodclaw mentioned, disaster relieve areas? Just toss some apple seeds on the ground and BAM, instant orch...

Re: Your first "Cartoon crush"

Woof. Lady Jaye. That voice, that character design, that attitude. It's no wonder her and Flint were a way more popular pair than Duke and Scarlet.

Re: Swords and Sorcery: Defining the genre

Absolutely. Just because I know how the metaphysics of my settings work doesn't mean the people living in said settings do. :D Even better: I don’t have to bother to figure out the metaphysics in the first place! After reading series like Fullmetal Alchemist and The Dresden Files , I have to admit ...

Meanwhile I'm remembering all of the times Conan or John Carter won the day via an army riding at their back. Ahhh. Good times.

Re: Swords and Sorcery: Defining the genre

Hey, as thread starter I'm the one who has final say when the derailment goes too far. :D As it stands, the debate is semi-relevenat in talking about how faith works in fantasy settings, including S&S, and different methods of implementing it. It's all good and I'll let you know when we've gone too ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

first Legion story I was able to read was the back half of a two parter featuring the Subs, as they (with help from Brainy) took on the Legion of Super-Assassins (also the same storyline that introduced Blok) Not to knock the Subs, but it's got to sting the egos of a group who call themselves The L...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

Another nice thing about the Subs is that the Legion genuinely respected them and were never cruel to them. They often had the Subs as a back-up force in case things ever really got dire, so its clear the kids had some potential. You'd even get weird stories where the Subs would save the day, such a...

Re: Swords and Sorcery: Defining the genre

This seems to have been something that got added to the game in the Lorraine Williams era of TSR. Williams was reportedly very hostile to "Anti-Christian" and "Overtly Catholic" elements of the hobby -- renaming devils to Baatezu, among other things, bing one of the more infamous parts of this -- a...
